Quality, sustainability and employees… not necessarily in that order

Since 1928 Swanson Bark and Wood Products (then known as Swanson Fuels) has shipped high quality sustainable wood products in the United States and abroad. The company’s biggest transformation came in 1994 when John Leber took the lead as president of Swanson and grew the company from 20 employees to over 100, while expanding the product lines to include mulch, custom soil blends, rock, biomass and much more. Under the guidance of its current president, Joy Leber, Swanson remains a leader in the industry.

Our 84 acre facility in Longview, Washington is home to a rail spur, bag plant, retail store and has enough space to keep ample material on hand at all times.

Our “open door” policy serves to empower every Swanson employee, no matter their job title, to call attention to potentially hazardous behaviors or situations and to offer solutions that will mitigate risk and further refine our safety procedures. At Swanson, safety is our number one priority.

Our goal to be an industry leader drives us to constantly seek innovative solutions that will improve both customer and vendor satisfaction.
